Did you know there is a knitting fairy tale? Hans Christian Andersen (now I have the song in my head) wrote one called The Wild Swans. In it, a girl has to spin thread out of nettles (!!!) and then knit it into coats for her brothers to return them back to human form. It seems that the King believes she is a witch because she hung out in graveyards (to get the nettles), even though she never casts any spell. But after she transforms the swans into men, he realizes she is not a witch. Huh?
Anyway. That's all I got.
